Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars

Thank goodness I came back before pumpkin spice said good-bye! I’ve been dreaming about these Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars since September. Yes, dreaming, night and day. It’s like they’ve been haunting me. In a good way. Haunting my thoughts and making my mouth water. Some might say I’m obsessed, but I like to think of it as passionate thoughts. I’m a foodie, I have

Black and White Banana Bites

Trying to stay cool during this heatwave almost makes you forget that we are nearing the end of summer. Yes, school is just around the corner! This can be a happy moment for some of you! And maybe a not-so-happy moment for those who are already dreading the back-to-school shopping coming up in your near future. But let’s just not

Watermelon Mint Popsicles

If you live in the Midwest or South, you know it’s been hot! Actually, hot is an understatement. It’s been unbearably, inhumanely, HOT, HOT, HOT!!! I heard it got to 110F degrees in Kansas! Is anybody else, besides me, looking forward to the cooler days of Fall? I know we can’t just wish Fall here, so we have to do what

Apricot Peach Honey Granola Bars

I have finally made a nut-free, bake-free Granola bar! I got the idea for these after making my Homemade Cough Drops earlier this year. I noticed as I prepared the honey for my cough drops, it became thickened, almost like a caramel. Since then, I’ve had the idea of making granola bars using that same preparation method for the honey.

Kiwi Blueberry Popsicles

I love summertime with the warmth of the sunshine and longer days. On the other hand, I could do without the bugs, especially the mosquitoes and flies, and the sweltering heat. I’ve lived on both the west coast and the east coast and I have to say, humidity makes it hotter than it really is! I grew up in California

Watermelon Popsicles

I don’t usually talk about movies here because it’s off subject for a food blog, but I just finished watching Moana on Netflix and I loved it! Moana is one of the best Disney movies I’ve seen in a long time! I love the characters Moana and Maui. Dwayne Johnson is the personification of Maui! The facial expressions and the

Easy Protein Yogurt

If you don’t like drinking protein smoothies or eating smoothie bowls to get your daily protein intake, then try this Easy Protein Yogurt. Made with only two ingredients, this protein yogurt is not only delicious, but it’s also easy to make and can be topped with your favorite fresh fruit.  A couple weeks ago, I made an avocado, cucumber, clover

Strawberry Rhubarb Zucchini Muffins

I can’t believe I’m already seeing pumpkin and apple recipes for Fall pop up on my feed for Pinterest! It’s not even officially summer yet! We’re still trying to wind down Spring and ease into summer over here. Why can’t we just enjoy the seasons as they come, instead of getting them pushed onto us? Hmm, hmm, Wal-Mart. Which brings

Matcha Green Tea Protein Bites with Cacao Nibs

Introducing my recipe for Matcha Green Tea Protein Bites with Cacao Nibs.  Not only is this a new and improved method for making my Matcha Green Tea Protein Bites, but it also has a little added crunch and chocolate flavoring from the cacao nibs. I first shared my recipe for Matcha Green Tea Protein Bites last year and it is one
